Irresponsible Politicians - Kucinich (Part 2)

A couple of days ago I wrote a post and created a new category label {Irresponsible Politicians}. Dennis Kucinich was the first subject for this category. Today I became aware of another Kucinich stupidity. I am posting this additional information as a new post because it needs more highlighting than an Update.

In yesterdays opinion section of The Morning Journal Newspaper, you can read this article (Kucinich drapes himself in shame, dishonor with Syria visit, 9/11 'no' vote). For what it's worth, The Morning Journal is in the heart of Congressman Kucinich's home district (Cleveland, Ohio). And Mr. Kucinich is a former Mayor of Cleveland.
Normally, Rep. Dennis Kucinich is best ignored simply because it's impossible to take him seriously, and why waste one's time.

But his deluded anti-American behavior this past week has been so grotesque and offensive it demands attention.
One instance of that behavior relates to Congressman Kucinich's trip earlier this month to Syria. This trip was what inspired me to post the first opinion article in the Category {Irresponsible Politicians Kucinich (Part 1)}.

But then last Tuesday, on the sixth anniversary of 9/11, Mr. Kucinich was back in Congress for a vote on a resolution honoring 9/11 heroes and victims. Irresponsible Politician Kucinich voted in the minority.
Congress on Monday passed a resolution honoring the victims and heroes of Sept. 11 and ''reaffirming the commitment to defending the people of the United States against any and all future challenges.'' The vote was 334 to 1.

The sole ''nay'' was cast by Kucinich.

In a statement issued from his alternate universe, Kucinich insisted that he really honors them all and really supports the troops, but found it impossible to support the resolution because it fails to condemn President Bush for lies, lies, lies (in the squinty eyes of Kucinich). [emphasis mine; ellipsis in original]
It has been said that we always get the elected leaders we deserve, but what did the people of Ohio do to deserve this disgraceful action? I think they deserve a recount.
